Women Who Rock // Lauren Ferris

I'm so honored to introduce you to my soul sister, Lauren. This chick is hands down THE strongest, most independant woman I know. That's a BIG statement. I dare anyone to tell her she can't do something.

This amazing mother, talented hairdresser, blogger and bombshell inspires me daily, so I just have to share her with the world. I love you Lauren.

Success means: To me, success has absolutely nothing to do with money. It is not measured by income. I guess I would say that success, to me, can be measured by the quality of life you've made for yourself. There are 168 hours in one week. 40(ish) of them are what most of us spend at work, sometimes far less and sometimes double that. Regardless of the time spent or the money earned, a successful person will be able to go home and live their actual life, emphasis on NOT their work life, to the fullest. Happily, eagerly, energetically, optimistically live their life. I suppose you could sum it up to say that success to me is the capability and willingness to happily and freely build your own person outside of your 40hr a week money maker. To rest your head on your pillow at night with a fulfilled heart and a smile on your face.

Something you're proud of: My darling little boy, our home, myself! woopwoop

A piece of advice: Don't take a single moment for granted. This life, challenging, scary, sad, lonely, cruel as it may be, is a blessing. Make your moments count.

Favorite quote: "The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them."

Women Who Rock // Megan Robertson

Meet Megan! This babe balances owning a business, being a hairdresser, wife, and as of this week- MOM! Megan took the leap to move across the country and open a salon in her happy place of Boulder, Colorado. She's a total go getter, amazing listener, and I can honestly say I've NEVER witnessed her have a single diva moment. (Which I of course envy because I'm crazy.) Z

Name:  Megan Robertson

Passions/ Occupations:  I've always had a passion in the creative arts.  As a former dancer I loved the creative side; Choreography.  Wanting more to my career than just dance I went to hair school and fell in love with creating beauty through hair.  I was able to combine the two while working for Van Michael Salons as their hair show choreographer.  A big creation came into my life over two years ago when I ventured into opening my very own Aveda Salon alongside my mom.  My occupation currently is a hairstylist / business owner. I'm loving the journey!

What success means to you: Success is when you find yourself making a living by doing something you love.  With this in place you never work a day in your life.

Something you're inspired by:  People that take risks and have powerful positive attitudes.

Something you're proud of:  My salon, Zinke Knoebel!

A piece of advice:  Go after your dreams, if they don't scare you they are not big enough.
